Network / Re: How to persist changes to the routing table?
« Last post by supergamer on Today at 08:49:35 PM »
I am not familiar with crontab but you can setup a cronjob to start at every reboot. How to get exactly what you need is you will have to create a script then just put the script somewhere like in the /usr/scripts folder and use a sudo crontab -e to run the script with @reboot then path to your script. Just an off the wall suggestion.

I can almost bet with good odds that it is unattended updates (security updates) that are being downloaded. There is a way to turn them off but it is not advised for new users or people who do not know what is really going on. I will give the code but please use it if you only know what your doing and this is what you really want.


Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades

Firefox though is a bit too slow, at least with video playback; the audio is fine but there's a lag with video, even with 360p. (I don't need high-res videos; I just want them to be watchable.) I'm not sure whether this is the browser, the way LL is running (on USB, which would be 2.0 on this machine), or the WIFI connection (a Verizon Jetpack, which is a cellular device). I've never seen a lag like this before. If anyone has any ideas about what's going on here and what I can try to speed things up I would love to hear them.
   

I've seen this before when running distros from USB in live mode. Browsers are a resource hog and need to save plenty of data on disk, since a USB stick doesn't provide nor the space neither the write/read speed they need, it's completely normal they lag a bit. If you install it on the HDD you'll see there's a lot of difference and it'll run just fine.

Hope this helps! :)

I'm not sure this is the correct sub-forum but here is the issue. I have a limited internet data plan and i would like to see exactly what is downloading and how much data it will use in real time, i would also like the option to pick and choose updates. Sometimes when i start my laptop and open my browser, a download of a size of 300mb starts to download, i cant see what this is. Ideally is like to be able to monitor every mb that linux lite downloads for updates/packages etc. I have moved from windows 7 and i am finding using this environment really refreshing however. Thanks.

Network / How to persist changes to the routing table?
« Last post by arun jayapal on Today at 11:30:18 AM »
I am running linux lite 4.6 inside virtualbox. The machine has two network interfaces. I face the issue where the machine isn't able to connect to the internet. After investigation I found the issue to be with my routing table. No idea why this routing table got persisted in the first place.

Code: [Select]
$ ip route
default via 192.168.175.1 dev enp0s8 onlink
10.0.2.0/24 dev enp0s3 proto kernel scope link src 10.0.2.15
192.168.175.0/24 dev enp0s8 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.175.18

After a bit of tinkering, I have a workaround. I modify the routing table as follows:

Code: [Select]
$ ip route
default via 10.0.2.2 dev enp0s3
10.0.2.0/24 dev enp0s3 proto kernel scope link src 10.0.2.15
10.0.2.2 via 10.0.2.15 dev enp0s3
192.168.175.0/24 dev enp0s8 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.175.18

I am not sure why the above works.

However, I have to manually issue commands to setup the routing table to the state as shown above, after every reboot.

I have tried some ways to persist using the /etc/network/interfaces file. The below file is an attempt at that:

Code: [Select]
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto enp0s3
iface enp0s3 inet dhcp

up /sbin/ip route add 10.0.2.2 via 10.0.2.15
up /sbin/ip route add default via 10.0.2.2

auto enp0s8
iface enp0s8 inet static
address 192.168.175.18
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.175.1

down /sbin/ip route del default

# up /sbin/ip route add 10.0.2.2 via 10.0.2.15
# down /sbin/ip route del default
# up /sbin/ip route add default via 10.0.2.2


But nothing worked.

Next I tried putting the commands in /etc/rc.local that didn't work too.

What is the correct way to persist this?

"the way LL is running (on USB, which would be 2.0"  Probably this.

Also, I believe the 4.x series should run on your machine just fine. 4G is plenty of RAM for most of the things you want.

On Topic / Firefox not fast enough for video
« Last post by mc_L20 on Today at 01:15:23 AM »
Based on suggestions in another thread I downloaded and am currently testing LL3.8 64 bit on a USB stick. Amazingly, LL was able to find my WIFI device and connect right away. This was the first major hurdle I expected because most of the other distros I tried couldn't connect; I am really pleased, and am actually posting this from the old machine. :)

Firefox though is a bit too slow, at least with video playback; the audio is fine but there's a lag with video, even with 360p. (I don't need high-res videos; I just want them to be watchable.) I'm not sure whether this is the browser, the way LL is running (on USB, which would be 2.0 on this machine), or the WIFI connection (a Verizon Jetpack, which is a cellular device). I've never seen a lag like this before. If anyone has any ideas about what's going on here and what I can try to speed things up I would love to hear them.

Thank you everyone.
